The Bishops’ speak

On the elections —fraud and backing any candidate –also on political killings; the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines has spoken. Read this report.

Its resounding message: Don’t let what happened in 2004 happen again in 2007 on election fraud. Its statement on the elections sort of sounded off its distrust on the legitimacy of President Arroyo. Also, they said in a separate statement that the Arroyo administration did not do enough in stopping political killings.

Public reactions could spin-off from these statements of probably the most influential religious force in the country.
